This publication is a compendium of the six volumes of vagrancy pass events we have already published.

This collection of vagrants' passes, held at the WSHC, is contained in fourteen large boxes dating from 1702 through to 1838 with some breaks in dates and were transcribed and edited by Rosemary Church and Jean Cole. It has been roughly estimated that each box contains over 3000 passes which were for expenses incurred by the passing of vagrants, mostly for those from outside the county, being passed through Wiltshire and its county borders to other county borders on their way back to their parishes or supposed parishes of settlement.
Usually the dates shown were the dates that the costs were collected by the tythingmen, constables or other officials and signed for, but sometimes the actual date of the removal was also given and this has been shown. Some names of tythingmen, constables, churchwardens and overseers were sometimes shown with bills of expenses incurred in passing the vagrants.

This publication is a compendium of the ten volumes of bastardy events we have already published. You can view them on page 13, the next page.

Bastardy documents and names of reputed fathers can be difficult to find, particularly in the 19th century. Usually the father’s name is omitted from birth certificates. Before 1875 a mother of an illegitimate child was able to supply the registrar with the name of the reputed father, but, after this, the man had to appear and affirm, or provide a signed affidavit, that he was the father before his name could appear on the birth certificate. In some cases where there was more than one birth by the same father, it may have been that the couple were living together or married later.
The the data in this publication was extracted from the Petty Sessions records. Where there are details of the witnesses’ evidence they have been transcribed. The original writing was hastily written down by a Court Clerk at the actual session, so he would often use abbreviations for common words and miss out the actual sentence used by the witnesses, only recording the gist of it e.g. single. In order to make the evidence readable full words have been inserted whenever possible. While the witnesses were giving their evidence they were often answering questions put to them by the magistrates, the complainant’s or defendant’s representative, this means that some of the recorded replies are rather disjointed and the readers will have to imagine for themselves the sort of questions that were put to these people. In most cases the names of the witnesses, and sometimes the relationships to either the complainant or defendant, are recorded. This will give additional and interesting information to the family history researcher who finds an ancestor here as either a witness or a main player in the case. The names of the complainants, defendants, witnesses and places are in alphabetical order.

CD 21 Poor Law in Wiltshire - Click for large image
We have provided a free name index to this product, as a pdf file, which can be viewed, downloaded, copied and printed. The index can be accessed through a link in the publications page on our website: www.wiltshirefhs.co.uk/index.php/publications.

The idea of settlement was a simple concept – that every person had a place of settlement, a parish where they were entitled to receive assistance, should they require it. There were very specific rules about how a settlement could be gained, which were set out in what has become known as the Act of Settlement of 1662, but was in point of fact an ‘Act for the Better Relief of the Poor of this Kingdom’. It was enacted when many parishes were finding themselves under pressure and needed stronger powers to rid themselves of unwanted migrants. These were uncertain times, when unemployment, sickness or the death of a family’s breadwinner could occur at any time. Most families faced the threat of poverty and reliance on the parish to avoid starvation, and it was vital for them to ensure that they had a legal settlement in the parish in which they lived.
The settlement laws generated a lot of paperwork. There were three main types of record – removal orders, settlement certificates and settlement examinations. Magistrates issued a removal order if they believed that a person or family needed – or were likely to need – relief, but had no right to settle in the parish. The removal order directed that a person or family be returned to their place of legal settlement. The parish constable would escort them to the parish boundary and hand them into the custody of the next parish
constable, and the process continued until they reached their destination.
The settlement certificate, which may reveal relationships between family members and families’ links with particular places, came into being when an Act of 1697 tried to encourage a little more mobility of labour than had been possible since the 1662 Act. The new system operated as a kind of guarantee; overseers were now allowed to give papers to parishioners who were seeking work in another parish certifying that they would be accepted back in the event that they later needed relief.
The settlement examination is usually by far the most useful settlement document for the family historian. They were produced when magistrates examined people, on oath, as to their place of settlement. Examinations often include ages, and much other useful information, such as birthplaces, places of marriage, ages of children, apprenticeship and employment details. They explode the old notion that our ancestors seldom strayed beyond the confines of their own parishes, doing the same jobs all their lives. It is also illuminating
to see how many men examined by the magistrates had served in the armed forces at some stage in their lives. They have been described as ‘mini biographies of the poor’ and – where these records have survived – they can give us an insight into the experience of ordinary people in the past, which few other sources can rival.
